Macmillan success today

(image from be.macmillan.org.uk)

The Macmillan coffee morning at the chapel went very well today - there was a lot of hustle and bustle and people were happy to be parted from their cash for a good cause.  Between the donations for the refreshments, the raffle, and the "Guess how many beans" sweepstake which Macmillan provided, we raised £185 there, and I have scrounged another £5 out of a friend to whom I sold some leftover cakes tonight!

One of the ladies made me a lovely hand-crafted birthday card, and they all sang Happy Birthday for tomorrow - it was really kind of them!

Hope that you have all had a good day whatever you have been up to - the weather has been great here, and I am hoping for a couple more fine and dry days to get some garden work done.

Happy belated birthday wishes Morgan, havent been on the computer for a few days so sorry about that. Yesterday we cut the Leylandii hedge, top and sides. Not as neat as it usually gets but have got OH to realise it needs felling, so hopefully if we have a mild dry winter we can cut a few on the trees down and take them to the tip while we are able.Luckily we can get quite a bit in the back of the car,
Bye for now busy washing cupboards out as infested with mites xxxx
